How We Can Do More With Less in Schools
Today, your custodial staff or your outsourcing contractor’s protocols are only designed to remove the dust and dirt that can be seen with the naked eye. That’s the final result you want, right… or is it?
Do you want a school or building that just looks clean to the naked eye, or one that has a healthier environment? After all, the things you cannot see are far more dangerous to the health of those who occupy your building, than the dust and particles you can see. A healthier building means fewer absences for your students, teachers, and employees.
Most, if not all school custodian departments, as well as janitorial and custodial outsourcing companies, do not have the knowledge to address eliminating these pathogens from your building. Much less have the knowledge, the equipment, chemicals, and scientific measuring equipment to remove them. And these pathogens, that you cannot see, are far more important to minimize than to just removing the dust and dirt that you can see.
For example, Non-Core Business Solutions (NCBS) addresses indoor air quality (IAQ), the micro particle count as small as 0.3 microns, and the VOCs in your building, as well as the processes for eliminating these. You will learn how we can maximize indoor air quality and minimize the particle count in your building. The application of these processes will mean your students, teachers, and employees will stay healthier and miss far fewer days of school.
You will learn how our company prevents as much dirt, dust, mold, mildew, dust mites, allergens, bacteria, viruses, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) from getting into your school as possible. It’s not realistic to expect that some of these won’t make it into your buildings, but can your custodial staff or current outsourcing contractor explain to you how they’ll address those that do get into your building? At NCBS, we can show you how to keep the occupants in your school or building as healthy as practical.
Does This Concept Almost Sound Too Good to Be True? Yes.
But the Reality is, with NCBS We Can Make It Happen.
We at Non-Core Business Solutions (NCBS) understand that today, the standard to which most custodial staffs and outsourcing companies are held is how visually clean they make your building look. That’s important, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re asking you to look beyond how your buildings look to how healthy they are.
NCBS specializes in sanitizing, as well as cleaning. We can accomplish this because we use specialized instruments that measure the particle count, germs, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in your school. You can’t see these germ particles or VOCs because most undesirable particles are less than 10 microns in size, while your eyes typically see things 10-40 microns in size or larger.
You must understand that what you can’t see is what’s really causing many health issues at your school. If the health of your teachers, students and staff is twice as important than just how your building looks, then you are only getting half of what you could get by just contacting us and finding out how we do it.
NCBS protocol not only addresses the removal of those unhealthy microscopic particles that have entered your school, but we also address keeping out as many of these pathogens as possible from entering your building. Utilizing our sanitizing and cleaning program, you will have far fewer sicknesses and absences among students, teachers and staff.
To determine our effectiveness, we don’t just throw out a number that is a guess at the most. We take initial measurements of the health of your buildings as a baseline and then get from you your reported sicknesses and absences before we begin using our sanitizing protocol. We then compare your past history of absenteeism with the present absenteeism. Once we install this program, we continually monitor the health of your buildings with our instruments to insure your buildings stay healthy.
Check Out This Example
Consider how lowering the percentage of sicknesses and absences would result in higher quality education. For example, for every teacher who met with 100 students who is out sick one day, these 100 students do not get full instructions for that day. Plus, a substitute teacher must be called in. Can you calculate the cost of what this lost learning means?
When you can eliminate a large percentage of absenteeism due to sickness, eventually parents will notice that teachers, as well as their children, are healthier. Plus, they will be happier because their children get sick less often. Their children also do better in their learning. When that happens, the administration will now be able to justify these results to them with facts and numbers, not just words.
This is just one example we’re asking you to look at concerning our sanitizing services. Outdated janitorial or custodial staffs and outdated outsourcing contractors which merely clean for appearance will not accomplish the job of sanitizing for health, no matter how much they clean. The superficial definition of cleaning for visual appearance is a thing of the past.
Today, you should demand that your schools have a viable service which not only cleans, but sanitizes your school for environmental health. Because Non-Core Business Solutions utilizes these technological advances, you can now do this. The future is now.
